message. so i think that will come up in the debate. as far as the prediction for what we'll hear from obama, i think an issue, we've seen in the polls, that has really resonated for the democrats has been their traditional scare seniors about medicare tactics. i think that has been working really well. i think obama will bring that up and i think one thing we'll hear is the phrase that romney would end up medicare's guarantee, which is a phrase the democrats have liked to use recently. we've rated that have to on for two reasons. one, it's not like it has a guarantee now. congress can change the medicare benefits any time it wants it. it really has. now, romney would change the structure of which people would pay for medicare and go from being, it would go, it would turn essentially into a voucher plan. so in that sense we found some truth in it and rated it transcends i think we'll hear that would also. >> thank you, bill. our next prediction from glenn kessler, chapter of facts, order of pinocchio's, geppetto of american journalism, journalist of decades of experience here in washin

debate begins. this for in our discussion with the obama and romney campaigns and as we've looked at the party platform, we have seen lots of attention being paid to child care and early learning that we might have expected. both in the presidential and also in the congressional races. given the research that points to the impact of attention to their earliest years of life, and given the of vintages of child care and helping low-income workers, we might have expected, for example, democrats to focus on child care after obama had been criticized for allowing flexibility for states and welfare work requirements. given the gender gap that the republicans face and need to overcome and given that child care is an issue many working mothers have been concerned about for a long time we might have expected detention to be paid by republicans. as i reported in the recent huffingtonpost.com peace and others talked about there's been insufficient attention paid by the campaigns in the opinion of many. the singular focus on employment and the deficit have taken the wind out of the sale of is

either governor romney or president obama to score political points, upcoming debates are some other forum and what that argument might sound like on these issues. is there any earthly chance that either of them would try to do something like that? >> only a case that is that not to the radar of the broader public would be health care. i think it will be a reference back. the supreme court because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs the supreme court just doesn't play among independent undecided voters. it is a motivator for one space to get out and get to the polls because you want this person to replace the justice when she did retires. if you want to know if there is any practical consequence in the short term, it would be at a point that carry me that the obama administration has declined to defend, the defense of marriage act. and president romney might well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of the statute, but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of civilians in something

they don't start out being, an obama proposal or a romney proposal or a democratic proposal or a republican proposal. what i'm more, i am less interested in exactly what is said in the debates the next four years when whoever wins says in the week or two after the election. to me, that's the time to step up and do the broader leadership and be tougher. >> what would you like to hear president obama say, either before or after the election? talk about romney, what about obama? too if your view as mine is that we're not going to have a deal that doesn't have both revenues and spending and the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side and that, as i do believe and i have asked a lot of democratic senators if my perception is correct and they say yes, and that is, that republicans continue to believe that at the end of the day in the 11th hour democrats will relent again as they did in 2011 and at the end of 2010. frankly one of the things the president has to do is to make it crystal clear that he is damn serious and he is not going to accept a deal that doesn't have both revenues and
